The entire program of this year’s 10th edition of the international festival of contemporary dance CoFestival 2021 is announced, which will take place at various locations between 25 November and 2 December 2021.

With the abundance of non-contact time that has occupied our lives in the last year and a half, we decided to focus this year’s edition of CoFestival, the international festival of contemporary dance, on a particular contact and relational time, which in contemporary dance was named Movement Research about half a century ago. These interests did not arise out of thin air during the mentioned period but were for various reasons already studied by kinesiology from the second half of the nineteenth century onwards as we entered the modern era. Primarily for health reasons, to reduce the number of injuries and treat them appropriately, or to optimise the physical work of manual industrial production with insights into the motor skills of the body. But very soon, contemporary dance art and kinesiology started to make pacts, to (un)officially meet, inspire each other and assemble their different knowledge and competences in order to benefit each other. The time of experiences could not be accelerated, it required duration and in some cases even outpaced the development of technology, which could only confirm the analysis of such bodily experiences.

However, in order that movement research would become part of the works of art and their reception, a whole range of intentional and accidental situations, circumstances and conditions had to coincide in contemporary dance, which we cannot address here, but we will tackle them with our programme this year.
